There is one big difference between the way Johnson expresses herself, as described in the previous chapter, and the way she is at heart, as discussed below: She is a very emotional, nurturing person with a light, flippant manner so that acquaintances do not realize right away how compassionate and easily hurt she is. Behind Johnson's clever wit lies a very sensitive soul!
Amy has powerful emotional attachments to the past, her family, her childhood, places she associates with safety and security, and her beginnings. It is very important to Johnson to maintain a connection with her roots and heritage and keep family bonds strong. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, Johnson tends to cling to whatever is dear to her - be it a person, a familiar place, or a cherished possession.
She is sympathetic, nurturing, supportive and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. Amy likes to be needed and to care for others, and she often worries about the people she loves. Amy Johnson has a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and much of her life centers on her home. She is more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration and tenderness are more meaningful to Amy Johnson than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
She is primarily emotional and her views are often dominated by her feelings and her own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic or abstract principles. It is difficult for her to judge situations fairly and objectively because her personal sympathies and loyalties usually factor in. Amy Johnson takes things very personally and sometimes builds a wall around herself to shield herself from pain and rejection. Amy Johnson feels rather shy and vulnerable at heart. She also tends to be moody and experiences frequent mood swings. Amy Johnson needs to have a place and time in her life to withdraw, introspect, dream and replenish herself; otherwise Amy Johnson becomes cranky and unhappy with those around her.
Amy Johnson functions in an instinctive, irrational manner and likes to immerse herself in creative activities where she can express her feelings, imagination and instincts. Johnson often loves to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. Amy Johnson also has a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Her compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are Johnson's strong points. Her faults include an inability to let go of the past and move forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency for self-pity when facing hardship.
Ownership gives Amy Johnson a sense of security, and she has a strong attachment to her possessions. Amy also has a natural instinct for or understanding of economics, finance, trade, and appraising the value of merchandise.
She is direct, energetic, sometimes aggressive and combative. Amy Johnson often feels that she needs to fight to get what she wants, and she tends to have a "me-first" attitude that angers or irritates others. She is hasty, restless, impatient and sometimes reckless.
While Amy Johnson does have a strong drive, she frequently holds herself back. One of her challenges lies in learning to endure frustration and to patiently overcome the obstacles in her life (or her own internal caution and resistance!).
Amy has to overcome considerable hardship in order to fulfill her personal destiny. However, she has the strength and stamina necessary to do so. Support and helpful guidance from her father or other significant men in her life may well be lacking. In fact, their disapproval of Amy and their harsh criticism are apt to be two of her greatest handicaps, and at times she may feel quite discouraged and alone. But true self-reliance and a solid sense of her own powers may well be the silver lining to that cloud in her life. Amy Johnson needs to learn to follow her own creative impulses and heart's desires, regardless of what her critics or the authorities may say.
Along with her energy and drive, Amy Johnson has high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in Johnson, as well as a doer and a fighter. Amy wants to win but not at the expense of others, and this may be somewhat of a dilemma for her.
While she is realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, Amy Johnson also has an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.
Sensitive and imaginative, she is attracted to artistic and creative pursuits and to mysticism. Amy Johnson is impressionable and receptive, and often has experiences that are unusual and unexplainable by the rational mind. Amy has an abundance of dreams, visions and longings, but does not always have the concentrated will and stamina to make them materialize. Gentle, idealistic and peace loving, Amy often seeks to avoid the harsh realities of life. Amy has an ethereal quality about her.
